All 8 Cities And Stadiums Confirmed For New XFL Teams

XFL announces eight teams, cities and stadiums for its return in 2020

The XFL held a press conference today in New Jersey, announcing the host cities and venues for the re-launch of the XFL.

Former Houston Oilers quarterback Oliver Luck (father of Andrew Luck) will serve as Commissioner of the league, and was also on-hand to push the XFL's use of next generation technology, a simplification of the rules, an increased focus on player safety as well as speeding up the game overall. "New Jersey couldn't be happier to be one of the eight host sites for the XFL's 2020 revival season".

Though not announced, the league has already registered XFL-related domains for Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Kansas City, Minnesota, Nashville, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, and San Francisco.

There was no immediate word on what each franchise will be called, who their head coaches will be and what players will be assigned to each team, but that will come in time.

McMahon said there will be more innovative and exciting play. The AAF also has eight teams and a 10-week schedule but has targeted mid-size markets. It intends to find players who are struggling to find a job in the National Football League, and from the college ranks. And that's the uncertainty for the Canadian league: will a revived XFL drain some of the talent pool for it? The XFL wants to "compliment" fall football. "We pledge to bring St. Louis a team deserving of a passionate and football-starved fan base".

Poor attendance, however, shut the league down after one season. The upstart leagues could easily follow the path of their various predecessors, which is to say straight to oblivion.

"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", Luck said. This is why the leaders of the CFL players association were, during Grey Cup week, none-too-subtly referring to the changing landscape of pro football when they were discussing upcoming negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement.

It seems they have a pretty good point.
